Tamastslikt Cultural Institute presents an entirely new perspective on history - that of the Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla Tribes.
The permanent exhibit gallery tells the story of the Tribes in three parts: "We Were," "We Are," and "We Will Be." The exhibit experience begins with a walk at the base of the Blue Mountains, leading to the permanent gallery where the Tribes' story is shared through exhibits designed by world renowned Jean Jacque Andre. An art gallery hosts changing exhibits and showcase local and regional art by tribal artists.
The 4,180 sq m (45,000 square foot) facility also features a visitor services wing complete with a museum store emphasising local tribal arts and crafts, multi-use theatre, and Cafe.
The museum services wing features archives and photo collections, the Institute's permanent artefact collection, a community storage facility, and other facilities for caring for artefacts, photos, and documents. Tamastslikt , which means "interpret" in the Walla Walla native language, is part of the Wildhorse Resort that also features a casino, 100-room hotel, 100-space RV park, and 18-hole championship golf course.
